    About this recipe: A simple recipe that is pretty much undetectable as gluten free. Try it see if any one realises. It rises better than the normal cake too.

    You can also use the mixture to make fairy cakes or sponge puddings. I've make lovely butterfly cakes with a 2 egg quantity of this mix.

    Serving suggestion

    Add lots of pretty icing to make this into a birthday cake.


    Replace 1 tablespoon of the flour with cocoa and sandwich with chocolate icing for a chocolate cake.

    I made this today for my Mum's birthday, she is gluten intolerant. It really was delicious! Everyone said it was delicious and I will definitely be making it many more times now I have found a great recipe. I made a buttercream for the middle and added strawberry jam, there is only a tiny bit left! Thanks very much for posting this, cant recommend it enough, give it a go. I doubt anyone would notice it is gluten free if you didn't tell them  -  11 Feb 2012


    Used this reciepe for my daughters 21st birthday cake. I've made a few Glutin free cakes but my family gave the thumbs up to this one. It was moist and sponge and a hit with my daughter.  -  09 Sep 2010
